Provo native Matt Reynolds signed with the Carolina Panthers Saturday night.  As an offensive lineman, Reynolds was a two-time captain and started all 52 games of his BYU career.

Terence Brown started for the Cougars as a center and a guard and made a deal with the Miami Dolphins.  As a senior, Brown was on the Rimington Trophy Watch List.

Defensive lineman Hebron Fangupo signed with the Houston Texans .  Fangupo transferred from USC to BYU and was named to the Phil Steele All-Independent Second Team.  During his BYU career he made 26 tackles in just one season.

As free agents, the players will participate in summer camps and try to make the team’s final rosters as the 2012-2013 NFL season draws closer.
